Yeesh...that was a tough thing to witness. It cant all be roses though.
Yep, he didn't even state "in this bubble of a city" as the other poster alluded to he said "in this bubble" which could mean the fishbowl that is pro sports pretty much anywhere. That somebody is trying to carve Nurse for those comments is just weak.
Late to this one.
PLEASE send Pool Party down and bring up a useful body. Man is Pool Party one useless tit. Nothing done out there. Kid needs to get his confidence man.
Too many fire drills in our end though.
And goalies and defence. The team had none of that when he got here. Sadly they aren’t much better after he left.
Yes...'Less Shame' would have been a much more appropriate way to phrase things. I was getting way ahead of myself.
I seen Nurse has 22 points or something the last 27 games? That is crazy
They didn't even beat us, we just beat ourselves. Literally.
There was a moment in the game (aside from the final buzzer) that brought a smile to my face.
It was the PP goal when Draisaitl and Chiasson looked around so stunned that they scored on such a bang bang play.
Maybe. But being on the ice for 3 goals against gets magnified anywhere, not just this 'bubble' that they play in
I think most people realize that every Canadian city is a "bubble" when it comes to hockey. I wouldn't take it personally.
I mean, Leaf fans were booing Gardiner a few weeks back every time he touched the puck. It's life in a Canadian market and it seemed like that's what he was referring to. But that's just my interpretation.
I didn't quote "in this bubble of a city". That was my interpretation. "Fishbowl that is pro sports pretty much anywhere". Ya no, Edmonton is a fishbowl where we can follow their lives because it's a smaller city compared to any other NHL city. it's a metaphor. Definitely not anywhere
I’d trade him because he looks high as a kite in that video.
We'll, it's legal now
I never want to see Nurse in any other uniform, he's one of a kind in today's league, which is why I took those post game comments to heart
I don’t think there’s ever been a career Oiler. At least not a substantial one. So I wouldn’t get to attached. He most likely was just nervous in front of the cameras. In saying that he usually doesn’t have an issue and is very well spoken. Was weird to see him stumble on a few questions, and as I said exhibit the anxious behaviour.
I don't know where else to post this but... Connor McDavid is Batman. I already knew this a few months ago but the Calgary game just cemented it. I also have a pic of him wearing the Batsuit if no one believes me.
Just a win finally. Amazing to lead in every 3rd period and not close it out for 3 of 4 games. Still not going to make the playoffs with the lack of depth this team has. Hope Hitch keeps the lines intact but maybe bench Malone and Benning.
Can't comment much since I missed most of the game, but I really didn't like Puljujarvi tonight. He always just floats the puck on net as soon as he enters the offensive zone. Doesn't try and beat the goalie, doesn't wait for his linemates, nothing. Just floats it on net and that's it. I'd like to see Benson up here for a few games and see what kind of game he can bring.
Oh they won, nice.
And the Kings. And Chicago.
I like point 4. In my humble opinion , I think Gravel has played ok, much better then Benning. With Klefbom back, Larsson has stepped up his play big time . I said before, when you lose a defenceman like Klefbom, you are losing 2 dman because the dman he played with is lost .
When Sekera comes back, it gets interesting.
I say trade Petrovic and Manning and let Gravel and Manning fight it out for 3rd pairing if Sekera is good to go
I'm concerned that you know how to photoshop but don't know how to screenshot
I live in the province of Oak Island, use to live near Oak Island and haven’t watched 1 min of the series. Is it any good?
I had him pegged for 40-45 points at start of year. I also at Puju pegged for 20-25 goals.
I guess I’m 50/50
